Some things are better left to the professionals. Take forklifts, for example. My dad and I recently did a bit of work up on his farm just out of Sydney and realised halfway through the job we were going to need a forklift. We had an old one that was long past its use by date, so we decided to hire one from the guys at NTP Forklifts. My dad knew of them from way back in the day, and it was pretty easy to organise forklift hire Sydney wide with these guys. No fuss, no stress, and we got the job done much quicker than we would have.
I’ve been a mechanic for the better part of 40 years, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned in all my time it’s that you get what you pay for. Cheap and nasty doesn’t compare with quality, and I’ll always pay for quality. Take Tufflift, for example. These guys specialise in car lifts and hoists, and they’re built to last. I’ve been using the same hydraulic lift for 10 years. In fact, I’ve just bought another from Tufflift after expanding my workshop. It’s rare to find a company that care this much about a product, but Tufflift are far and away the best I’ve come across in my time.
My husband and I just celebrated our one year wedding anniversary, and I’m sure we can both safely say it’s been the best year of our lives so far. We had a lovely honeymoon in Paris, bought our first home in the city, started new jobs that are promising career moves, and I’ve just found out I’m pregnant – what a 12 months it’s been! For our one year anniversary, we sat down and watched our wedding video again. The team at C2 Video shot the beautiful wedding film and watching it again was like being there on the day itself. You don’t even notice the film crew on the day, and yet they never missed a single moment. It was such a joy reliving that day, and we owe it all to C2 Video.

I love a good deal. There are so many rip-off artists out there, and it pays to do your due diligence. Whenever I’m spending a lot of money on a product or service, I like to make sure I’m getting the best deal possible and value for my money. Most recently, that was with Blockout Blinds. My wife and I were renovating our kitchen and the finishing touch was the windows. We wanted blinds instead of curtains as they’re easier to use and clean, and a bit more durable in an area like the kitchen. A friend of mine worked in the industry, and he recommended Blockout Blinds. As always, I did my research and they seemed to come up as the winner. Great prices, exceptional service, and their product range was unlike anything I’d ever seen. The guys came out straight away, measured everything up and gave us a quote on the spot. Done. They’re coming out next week to install the blinds and I couldn’t be happier.
I’m not much of a cook so when people say home cooked it doesn’t necessarily mean delicious to me. The Dineamic ‘home cooks’ are a good bit better than me though so that’s a good start. I have Dineamic meals probably three times a week, which significantly reduces the amount of cooking and shopping I have to do and that’s just perfect for me.
I’ve been trying to take better care of myself and that’s become a whole lot easier since subscribing to Dineamic. The home cooked meals are delivered to my door once a week and it’s a little package I look forward to every week without fail. Just like coming home to a clean house, coming home to a great home cooked meal is a real treat and I just don’t know how I lived without it for so long.
A vertical garden is a great idea for anyone because they just look so good. In an office or a shop or in the garden at home; I’ve seen a few I didn’t like but the good ones are really good and such an interesting way to use space. We seem to be getting more and more city centric and while many of us can only dream of a tree change, we know there’s too much on offer being close to a great place like Melbourne.
For me I can handle a small town house so long as I have a little bit of greenery and that is exactly what I get with my O2 Plantwall. They put together all kinds of vertical gardens and they really understand that it has to be easy and convenient. Ours looks beautiful, it smells wonderful and it’s just my favourite part of the house.
When we moved it was sort of hasty and we underestimated all of the changes we’d want to get the new place exactly how we wanted it. When it came to the fences and gates we had prepared for a bit of a hit but some of the quotes we got were just ridiculous. Thankfully my brother recommended we speak to Haven Fencing who were actually amazing.
We needed driveway gates in Melbourne and I think what we got from Haven Fencing was a real steal. It wasn’t just the quality of the fences but of the installation, service and general professionalism. I haven’t stopped raving about them and all too often I’m exactly the opposite with this sort of thing. You really should get them out to look at your place before going ahead with anyone else.
The main reason as we saw it, to do guided Yarra Valley winery tours was so you could drink and have someone else drive you along and do all the hard work. We found Dreamscape Tours certainly have you covered in both those respects but they really offer so much more. Our guide, Rick was funny and really knowledgeable on the area.
All the stops we made were well timed and well chosen and we really felt like we got to experience the very best of the Yarra Valley in a unique and boutique way. The wines were amazing and it was just the right amount of informative while still being a really fun, casual day out in such a beautiful part of Victoria. For Yarra Valley winery tours Dreamscape tours are fantastic.
Unfortunately, kidney disease is common in my family. I’ve recently been diagnosed with it, and thankfully while it’s not too serious it’s definitely something I want to tackle straight away before it becomes a more serious issue later in life. I asked the doctor if natural, herbal remedies would work and she suggested I may as well give them a go. It’s not every day that a doctor tells you to go for an herbal medicine over a modern one. I’ve always been pretty conscious of using herbal, natural alternatives wherever possible as I’m a little sceptical of modern medicines and their relationships with big pharmaceutical companies. A company I’ve used in the past is PPC Herbs and I went straight back to them this time around. They’ve got heaps of great options for kidney detox including the Fluid Plex range which is fast acting and completely plant-based. I’m talking parsley leaf, gravel root, golden rod herb and hydrangea. I’m glad I caught my illness early, as it means I’ve now got time to test these herbal remedies and see if they work. If not, I’m more than happy to go back to the doctor and seek further medical advice.
I am a beginner and just recently purchased my first 125cc dirt bike from GMX, after recommendations from some more experienced riders. I took it for a ride over the weekend and I am absolutely stoked by its light weight and easy handling.
